At the NFLPA Rookie Premiere in Los Angeles, EJ Manuel says he's picking up the Buffalo Bills offense with relative ease.
"The funny thing is it's easier to learn than the offense I had at Florida State," he told SiriusXM NFL Radio, via ESPN. "It's a true West Coast-type progression offense. That's really what I wanted when I was coming through the pre-draft process. I wanted something that I could just go in and say 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, check it down and run it. That's it, it's that simple. I love it."
The 6, 5", 240lb Manuel has been bworking under the tutelage of offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, and is quickly bonding with rookie receivers Robert Woods (USC) and Marquise Goodwin (Texas), and TE Chris Gragg (Arkansas).
"I think the biggest thing is we all come from winning programs. We're used to winning, we're used to preparing to win," Manuel said in the interview.
